(Cl. 40—126) This invention relates to a new and improved method of making articles from blanks of fold able material and more particularly, the inven tion pertains to a new method of cutting and scoring a blank of foldable material whereby in tegrally connected sections thereof may be folded or moved to position in different planes and at the same time, maintain intact the integral con nection between the sections. 10 The invention herein set forth has many di verse uses and is not, therefore, to be limited to the display devices ‘herein illustrated since the or pasted together in the built updevice result ing from the well known method of manufacture above mentioned. By my improved method of manipulation, I am able to obtain effects impossible of attainment by the old method above described. One, and prob ably the most apparent effect which I am able to obtain, is the bringing into visible position upon either side of the blank from which ‘the display deviceis formed, portions of the reverse face to 10 that being viewed by an observer. Such a result is impossible of attainment by the old and well invention has been employed by me in the forma known method afore-mentioned. tion of many other types of articles not even re 15 motely related to display devices and in which Another important feature of my invention re the obtaining of ornamental effects was not the sides in the fact that the movable sections Of my 15 device are movable relatively to each other with main object sought. out contracting or otherwise reducing the original I am aware of the fact that articles such as de scribed above are not, as broadly as stated, new. size of the blank from which they are formed. Although, as above stated, my invention is 20 All such devices with which I am familiar, how applicable to a wide ever, are constructed in a built up manner. That ticularly applicable variety of articles, it is par to display devices since, in 20 is to say, two or more suitably shaped elements are connected together and either held in spaced that it is capable of manufacture at a minimum relation or permitted to move to planes in spaced cost of production, it will fold to a ?at position for 25 relation, by connecting elements, the ends of which are glued or pasted to the members which they serve to connect. Furthermore, after such storing and shipping, and moves readily to its set up or display position, it highly recommends itself 2 to such use. 5 A still further result which I am able to ob devices have been completely formed, while their sections may be movable to position in spaced tain- is the production of a display device which has display qualities of a highly pleasing nature 30 planes, they are not capable of movement to po when viewed from either face thereof. In fact, 30 sition in a single plane. While the desired effects obtained by my in~ except for the manner in which the device may vention may possibly be obtained in the well be printed or otherwise ornamented, my display 35 known manner above described, the necessary die cutting and gluing operations attendant thereto, are expensive and render such method prohibitive in the. construction of certain articles, the manu facturing cost of which must be kept within cer 40 tain limitations. I have discovered, as will hereinafter become apparent, a new and novel method of operation or manipulation of cardboard, paper and in fact any foldable material, whereby certain articles of the afore-mentioned type, i. e., in which there are 45 two or more sections or display areas disposed in spaced planes when the device is in its extended position and which, when the device is in its knocked down position, will lie ?at with all of its sections in a single plane, may be constructed 50 from a single blank of such material. Further more, in the practicing of my method, I employ no gluing or pasting operations, the article re sulting from my method having all of its com ponent, parts integrally connected as distin- ‘ 55 guished from the several parts which are glued has no reverse side or face. For example, my device may be printed or otherwise ornamented upon both of its faces and either face displayed 35 to view at will. Such a method of use is not possible with any other display device with which I am familiar. _ Many other advantages will become apparent as the nature of my invention is better understood 40 for which purpose, reference will be had to the following speci?cation and claims ‘and the ac companying drawings, wherein I have illustrated only a few of the various forms of display devices in which my invention may be practiced, and in 45 which: ' > Figure 1 is a plan view of a blank illustrating the manner in which the blank is treated to con struct a device in accordance with the present invention, 7 .

Thus, as heretofore stated, the crease or score lines each intersect a line of cut in this form of the invention. The lines of cut designated 30, and the crease blank, Figure '7 is a detail fragmentary plan view on an enlarged scale illustrating a section of the set 10 up device as formed from the blank illustrated in or score lines 3| divide the blank into a plu rality of connecting elements 32, which con 10 necting elements are integrally connected at one end to the section B and at the opposite end to the section C of the blank.

It is to be structed in accordance with that form of the in-: 30 vention illustrated in Figure 13, the device being in its set up position, understood that the crease or score lines which are designated 33 in Figures 2 and 3 of the draw _ ings are score lines made upon the rear face of the Figure 15 is a fragmentary elevational view of that form of the invention illustrated in Figures 13 and 14, Figure 16 shows a blank treated to provide still blank as it is viewed in the drawings, while the crease or score lines designated 34 in Figure 2 of the drawings are crease or score lines which are made upon the front face of the blank as viewed a further modi?ed form of the invention, ' Figure 17 is a view in elevation of that form in the drawings. of the invention illustrated in Figure 16, the de vice being in its set up position, Figure 18 is a plan view of a blank showing 40 curved or arcuate in form and are arranged in a circular series, the axis of which may be desig nated E in the drawings, and it is also to be noted still a further modi?ed form of the invention, Figure 19 is a view in elevation of that form of the invention illustrated in Figure 18 in its set that the crease or score lines, heretofore men tioned as intersecting the lines of out, are angu up form, Figure 20 is a top plan view of the device illus trated in Figures 18 and 19 in its set up form, Figure 21 is a plan view illustrating a still fur ther modi?ed form of the invention, Figure 22 is a detail fragmentary perspective view on an enlarged scale illustrating that form of the invention shown in Figure 21, .

One material which I have found highly satisfactory, particularly in the formation of display devices, is cardboard or heavy paper. The blank is out along a plurality of lines of out designated 30. These lines of cut 30 divide the blank into two sections B and C. Intersecting the lines of cut 39 there are crease or score lines 31 and these crease or score lines connect the ends of certain of the lines of cut. In the present illustration of the invention, the crease or score larly disposed with respect to each other and to the 45 lines of cut and extend radially from the point D ‘in the drawings. By this arrangement and construction of parts the two sections are capable of axial movement relative to each other to position them in spaced planes, as illustrated in Figure 3, and further, the two sections are always connected by integral connecting members which are integral with both sections and which provide spacers to maintain 55 the sections in their spaced relation. In'Figure 5 I have illustrated a modi?ed form of my invention in which the arcuate or curved lines of cut are arranged in an oval formation, as distinguished from a circular formation, as in the heretofore described form. In this form of the invention the crease or score lines are radial, as in the heretofore described form, and the two sections of the blank are movable axially with re lation to each other to position them in spaced planes at the same time maintaining theintegral connection of the connecting members with said two sections. In Figures 6 through 9, inclusive, I have shown another adaptation of the principle and in the said ?gures the blank A is divided into the two 70 sections B and C by lines of cut designated 40, ll, 42, 43. The reference numeral 44 designates crease or score lines which divide the blank into connecting members 45 which are integrally con nected to the sections B and C. I There is a slight 75 2,118,432 difference in this form of the invention as com pared with the form heretofore described in that the crease or score lines 44 do not intersect lines of cut as in said previously described form but do instead, terminate at points spaced along the lines of cut. The manner in which the blank is cut in that form illustrated in Figures 6 to 9, in clusive, provides sections 41, which sections are herein depicted in simulation of packages of 10 articles such as cigarettes. In this form of the invention the two sections B and C are relatively movable in an axial direc tion to throw them in spaced planes and at the same time maintain them in integrally connect ing relation, and while I have illustrated these sections 41 as simulating packages of cigarettes, it is obvious that by varying the shape or direc tion of the lines of out, other articles may be formed and the invention is therefore, not to be 20 limited to any particular formation of out no!‘ to provide articles of any speci?c type. For example, in Figures 10 through 12, I have shown a form of the invention in which letters such as 50 are cut from the section B of the blank and are integrally connected with the in~ ner section C thereof by connecting elements 5|. To provide this type of device, the blank A is out along the lines 52 and creased or scored along the lines 53 and 54 to divide the blank respec 30 tively into the inner and outer sections C and B, letters and connecting elements. In this form of the invention I have shown a suitable base or other support 58, and to prevent the appearance of open spaces, I have provided the entire device 35 with a backing sheet or the like 59. The base 58 and the backing sheet 59 are, however, not necessary to the operation or construction of this device and are merely added to illustrate the fact that the device may be suitably supported and that the spaces caused by the ornamental sections displaced from the main body may be hidden or rendered less obvious. In each of Figures 13 through 22 there is added a feature not disclosed in those forms of the invention heretofore discussed, and this feature will now be described. It will be noted by reference to these ?gures that the entire blank is not circular in form. It is obvious that when constructed in circular form 50 as set forth in Figures 1 to 12, inclusive, axial movement of the two or more sections does not necessarily change their relation other than posi tioning them in spaced planes. However, when the entire device is of less than circular form, for example, semi-circular, axial movement of the sections relative to each other to throw them into different planes would give an uneven line along the bottom since, if the bottom line were straight, on one side the bottom edge of the section would be moved beyond the bottom edge of the adjacent section and on the opposite side it would be moved above the bottom edge of the adjacent section. Therefore, in laying out such a device the blank is cut and creased or scored so that a greater 65 portion thereof is positioned upon one side of a center line so that as the sections are moved rela tive to each other in an axial direction into spaced planes, they will even up along their bottom edges. This is illustrated in Fgures 13 through 19 of the drawings. ' For example, by reference to Figure 13 the blank is substantially semi-circular, its radius line being designated by the reference character 60. By-reference to Figure 13 it will be seen that 75 the greater portion of the blank is disposed to the 3 right of a center line. However, when the two sections are moved axially the sections will attain a straight line designated by the reference char acter 65 in Figure 15 and the device will be sub stantially semi-circular in form. In Figure 14 I have illustrated to an ex aggerated degree the fact that there is, in all forms of the invention as illustrated, a slight bowing of the blank. This results from the fact that the crease or ‘score lines are radial and emanate from a common point, and consequently, 10 the farther from this point they are located, the greater the space between them, and since they radiate and are therefore angularly disposed, the center portion of the device, or that portion closely adjacent the point from which the crease 15 or score lines emanate, is naturally narrower than at points more remote therefrom, and inas much as these lines constitute the lines on which ' the folding takes place, it necessarily throws the two sections in angularly disposed spaced planes 20 as illustrated in said Figure 14. In Figures 13 to 15, inclusive, the device com prises five sections, namely, 10, ‘H, 12, 13, and ‘H. The sections ‘I0, 12, and 14, are formed from 25 the main body portion of the blank, while the sections H and 13 are in this instance, in the form of letters, which letters are connected to the next adjacent section to that from which they are formed by connecting members 16 30 formed by crease or score lines ‘I1 upon which they fold to permit of the sections 10, .12, and 14 moving in the spaced planes. In this form of the invention the sections ‘H and 13 may be other than letters if desired. Also in this form of the invention I provide a 35 supporting base which consists of two sections 19 and 80. The section 19 is preferably an integral part of the blank while the section 80 is a separate piece pasted or otherwise secured to the blank in 40 such a manner that when the blank is folded, the section 19 and a portion of the section 80 will be positioned in front of the blank while a portion of the section 80 will be positioned behind the blank, and these sections 19, 80, and BI will form a suitable support for the device in this set 45 up form. ' In Figures 16 and 1'7 I have illustrated a device formed from a rectangular blank which consists of two sections 90 and 9!. From one of these sections, letters 92 which, of course, may take 50 other forms, are cut from one section of the blank and connected to the other section of the blank by connecting members 93 similar to those heretofore mentioned. It will be noted by refer ence to Figure 16 that the section 9| extends be 55 low the bottom line 94 of the blank as at 95 and that the said section 9| also extends inwardly oi’ the side 96 of the blank as at 91. This is done so that when the two sections 90 and 9| are moved axially with relation to each other as by 60 moving the section Si in the direction of the arrow 98 in Figure 16, the bottom sides and edges will be straight and the entire device will take on a true rectangular form. The portions 95 and 65 99 may or may not be removed and if left in position upon the blank may form a suitable sup port therefor to hold it in display position. In Figures 18 through 22 I have shown an arrangement whereby the device may be em ployed for supporting articles, the articles being mounted or carried within pockets which are formed when the two sections of the blank are moved axially with relation to each other. Referring to the above mentioned ?gures, the 2,118,482 blank consists of an outer-section I00 and an inner section IOI. These sections are connected together by connecting elements I02 which are formed by crease or score lines I03, the sections IOI being formed by lines‘ of cut I04. It will be noted that in this form of the device the bottom edge of the major central portion of the blank Jwhich is designated I00 is angularly disposed so that when the section IN is moved in the direc 10 tion of the arrow H0 in Figure 18, the bottom eiiges of the two sections will move into aline ment with each other providing a straight bot tom edge III for the blank as illustrated in Figure 19. This construction provides pockets or 15 the like ‘I I2 which may receive various articles such as actual packages of cigarettes or any other articles which it may be desired to display, and if the blank is cut, as illustrated in Figure 18, and folded along the bottom line designated I06 in 20 said ?gure, there will be provided a portion II5 which will act as a support for the device to re tain it in display position. Referring to Figures 20 through 22, substan tially the same construction as that illustrated in 25 Figures 18 through 20 is provided in a rectangu lar blank. In this form of the invention the blank consists of two sections I20 and HI which are connected together by connecting elements I22, the blank being cut along the lines I23 and 30 creased 0r scored along the lines I24 to provide these several sections, as best illustrated in Figure’ 22. This construction provides pockets or the like for the reception of articles to be displayed, a tooth brush, designated I25 in Figure 22 being shown by way of illustration, which articles will be held in display position and will also serve to maintain the two sections I20 and I2I of the blank in position in spaced planes. In Figures 23 and 24 I have illustrated still a 40 further modified form of the invention in which the blank is divided into three sections I30, I3I, and I32. This form of the invention is substan tially the same as that illustrated in Figures 1 to 4 of the drawings except that in that form 45 illustrated in Figures 23 and 24 there are two circular series of cut lines designated I50 and I5I arranged one within the other in concentric rela tion. The ends of the lines of cut in each circular instead of curved or of irregular from, the forma tion or shape of these lines not being important except to attain the desired design. It will be noted that in each instance‘, the de vice, when in its knocked down form, has all of its sections which are integrally connected in the same plane. This is due to the fact that all sec tions are cut from a single blank and are dis posed within the con?nes of said blank and are integrally connected. However, when the device 10 is to be set up, the several sections'are moved into spaced planes and they can be again moved into the same plane in order to provide a ?at ' blank. Such a construction renders the manufacture 15 of certain devices of which display devices, pic ture frames, article holders, are but a few, rela tively cheap and simple and also provides for the folding or knocking down of such devices into a relatively thin structure, thus greatly facilitat ing their storage and transportation. Further more, the invention eliminates entirely all in tricacies in the setting up of the device since it is only necessary to move the members relatively to each other in an axial direction and the device 25 automatically moves to its set up position or, if in set up position and such movement is imparted to the device, it will automatically move to its folded position requiring no special knowledge or skill upon the part of the operator. ‘ may be set up or knocked down at will. Further more, the invention permits of a wide ?eld of dec oration, since, depending upon the degree of axial movement given the members, portions of both sides of the blank from which the article is formed may be moved in positionto be visible from either ‘side thereof, While in the present embodiment of the inven tion the device has been disclosed only as a dis- 45 play device, it is obvious that it has many other uses and the invention is not to be limited to the as heretofore described, and this form of the formation of such devices but may be employed in the manufacture of various other articles. Having thus described the invention, what is invention will position the three sections I30, I3I, claimed as new, is: series are connected by crease or score lines I52, and I32 in three different planes when the sec tions are moved relatively in axial direction. In Figure 25 the device is constructed in exact 55 ly the same manner as that in Figures 1 through 4. However, in ‘Figure 25 of the drawings the section C has been rotated axially to such an ex tent that the connecting members, which are, in said ?gure, designated I10, move to such a 60 position that their reverse face is brought into view upon that face of the blank being viewed. This is accomplished merely by moving the sec tions axially with relation to each other through a greater distance in Figure 25 than has been 65 done in Figures 1 through 4. It will be obvious that when the device is constructed in this man ner portions of both sides of the blank are visible from either side thereof and this construction and arrangement of parts allow for a great latitude in the ornamentation of the device. It will be noted that in each of the forms of the invention, as herein illustrated, the lines of out are curved or of irregular form. It is to be understood, however, that this is not necessary 75 since these lines might also, if desired, be straight 30 From the foregoing it is apparent that the present invention provides a new and improved method of cutting, creasing or scoring and fold ing cardboard whereby articles having integrally connected sections in different planes may be 35 constructed from a single blank of material and 1.
